Jeremy Hunt Price Shortens To Be Next Conservative Leader
Jeremy Hunt is now the shortest price he has ever been since the introduction of the Next Conservative Party Leader market when he was initially introduced at 50/1.
We have slashed the price on the Foreign Secretary into 10/3 from 7/1 to be crowned Theresa May’s replacement.
Despite the move in the market, Hunt has been accused of dirty tricks and backers of the Foreign Secretary were urged to rein in “personal abuse” against the Tory frontrunner Boris Johnson in the wake of police being called to Johnson’s house.
Hunt has called Boris a coward and a bottler for refusing to turn up to debates.
Boris Johnson had been backed off the boards to be the next leader of the Conservative Party after the first round of MP votes were counted last week.
This speculation over a row with his girlfriend has caused Boris to drift into 1/5 from 1/20 to become the next Conservative Party leader.
Hunt has claimed he will be able to renegotiate the Brexit withdrawal agreement with the EU should he become the next PM, but even if Boris Johnson wins the contest, it’s still odds-on at 3/10 that we won’t see a ‘no deal’ Brexit before the end of the year.
